What is Information Architecture?
By sorting out things like this:
-Classification and Hierarchy
-Labels and Tagging
-Navigation and Wayfinding
INFORMATION ARCHITECTURE (IA for short) connects PEOPLE to the CONTENT they're looking for.
The 'content' people are looking for could be text, images, videos, whole documents, or even conversations... and other people.
IA also helps the people who create and maintain content do their job easier, and links content to other content to make it more usable and easy to find.
